I have to say that looking at these pieces, I really don't like what Karl Lagerfeld did at Chloe. He made it too sexy and ....80's

Why did he stop designing at Chloe? Does anyone know?

And where can I find a list of people that have designed at Chloe?

Well, it was the early '80s, so that's hardly surprising, really, is it?

Maybe you just don't like '80s fashion, in general?

Chloe has always been slightly sexy - that's partly why PMA's style didn't fit in very well.

The first time he left, it was because Chanel beckoned!

He first joined Chloe in 1965 and then became the exclusive designer in 1974. He stayed there until 1983, when he left to join Chanel and then returned in 1992, after Martine Sitbon left.

I don't know for sure, but I think he didn't really intend to stay very long the second time, as he was designing for Chanel and his own line and I imagine that designing for three houses, simultaneously, might be a bit too hard work, even for Karl!

Here's a potted history of the house (written by myself, with reference to the book Chloé by Hélène Schoumann, published by Assouline):


1952 - Gaby Aghion creates Chloé
1953 - Aghion forms a partnership with Jacques Lenoir
1956 - Chloé's first fashion parade (at the Café de Flore, Boulevard Saint-Germain, Paris)
1957 - Gerard Pipart is hired as a designer
1964 - Christiane Bailly and Maxime de la Falaise work for Chloé
1965 - Karl Lagerfeld joins Chloé
1966 - Designers Tan Guidicelli and Michele Rozier join Chloé
1971 - The first Chloé boutique opens at 3 Rue Gribeauval, Paris
1973 - Launch of the Chloé perfume. Second Chloé boutique opens at Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honore, Paris
1974 - Karl Lagerfeld becomes Chloé's exclusive designer
1983 - Karl Lagerfeld leaves Chloé. Guy Paulin joins Chloé
1985 - Dunhill Holdings buy-out Chloé. Designer Philippe Guibourge joins Chloé. Gaby Aghion and Jacques Lenoir leave Chloé
1987 - Chloé hires Martine Sitbon
1992 - Karl Lagerfeld returns to Chloé
1994 - Chloé moves to 54-56, Rue du Faubourg-Saint-Honore, Paris
1997 - Chloé hires Stella McCartney
1999 - Chloé opens New York boutique on Madison Avenue. Creation of Chloé Lunettes. Chloé boutique opens in Hong Kong
2001 - Phoebe Philo Becomes Artistic Director of Chloé
2002 - Chloé opens London boutique on Sloane Street. Regular line of small leather goods, handbags and shoes begins
2006 - Phoebe Philo leaves Chloé (to spend more time with her baby daughter). Five days after the Spring/Summer '07 collection is shown, Swedish designer Paulo Melim Andersson (formerly of Marni) is named as the new Creative Director
2008 - Nine days after the Autumn/Winter '08 - '09 show, Paulo Melim Andersson is fired and Hannah MacGibbon, former Assistant Director to Valentino, part of the Chloé design team since 2001 and Chloé Chief Designer since 2006, is named as the new Creative Director

That's a beautiful piece - no wonder he was inspired by it!

I definitely remember Victorian and Edwardian influences in fashion, when I was a child, in the '80s.

Does anyone have any other designs by Gaby Aghion for Chloe???

I've seen her designs and prints that she created in magazines when they interviewed Phoebe Philo.

There were some really interesting photos on her inspiration board!!

I wonder - is there a book on the heritage of Chloe BEFORE Lagerfeld??? I don't like his designs for Chloe!

I wonder if they know, for sure, that this dress is from the '60s?

Because it looks far more like styles I've seen from c 1980, to me.

If I could see the label, I'd probably be able to tell.

I've never seen one, sadly.

There's the Chloe book, of course, but it's quite small and really doesn't have that many pics.
